Nikola Tesla, the great genius of electricity and perhaps the greatest scientific visionary of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, has for many years been largely forgotten by history.
The achievements of Nikola Tesla were amazing. The man saw the future like no one else before him, and he envisioned a planet where free energy ruled the world.
The revolutionary scientist was born to Serbian parents in the town of Smiljani, modern-day Croatia.
Tesla was the inventor of the induction motor, the system of alternating current power transmission, popularly known as two-phase, three-phase, or poly-phase systems, and the rotating magnetic field, which played a major role in future technologies.
He was also the real inventor of the radio, pioneer of remote-controlled objects, robotics, remote-controlled weapons, vertical take-off aircraft and the first low-energy lamps and wireless transmission of electricity. But Tesla invented more than just that.
He made groundbreaking discoveries such as wireless radio communications, turbine engines, helicopters (although it was Da Vinci who first had the idea), fluorescent and neon lights, torpedoes and other fascinating technologies that are said to have been confiscated by the government. By the time of his death, Tesla held nearly 700 worldwide patents.
Authentic ‘technological wonders’ that have been key to the technological progress we live in today.
Tesla was an extraordinary scientist, a completely outrageous inventor (in a positive way), but most importantly, Tesla was a man without limits.
Tesla was a genius who anticipated more than one hundred years ago, our way of life and technologies used by us.
Tesla had “crazy ideas” for a wireless future, but also for the use of clean energies.
Already in 1900, he warned of the need not to exhaust fossil fuels.
The scientist supported the idea of looking for new sources of alternative energy such as solar or wind.
But nobody listened to him.
It is rightfully said that Nikola Tesla was a man who lived a hundred years ahead of his time.
Tesla’s mind was more than prodigious: he designed inventions in his head, without plans or writings.
His particular and unique way of working did not allow him to have disciples who could defend his memory and many of his merits were attributed to other scientists such as Thomas Edison or the Italian Guglielmo Marconi.
Nikola Tesla is said to have had the ability to literally imagine his inventions in his mind, during so-called moments of clarity, where he said to see his inventions in holographic detail. Tesla claimed that he could even rotate these visions taking them apart piece by piece and he knew exactly how he was going to build these inventions based on his visionary experiences.
But, to understand the mind of this electrical genius, here is a copy of „An Interview With Nikola Tesla, Electrical Wizard by Samuel Cohen, from 1915.”
